SAP is the largest provider of enterprise resource planning (ERP) systems and is a particularly important player in manufacturing-based industries that incorporate complex production processes and regulatory requirements. SAP is also the name of the ERP system the company created. With the advent of cloud-based resource planning solutions, manufacturers are finding that they can and must drive cost savings and efficiencies with more robust tools that augment their SAP ERP implementations and better monitor, control, and streamline the production processes.

SAP enterprise resource planning software is one of the most popular ERP packages in the world, consisting of both onsite and cloud-based systems targeting large and midsize businesses. ERP systems are used to control supply chains and monitor material inventory levels while incorporating oversight of other enterprise-level assets, such as staffing levels and financial resources. Evolving out of material resource planning (MRP) and manufacturing requirement planning (MRP II) systems and incorporating the functionality of these earlier methodologies, ERP can provide comprehensive resource monitoring and reporting capabilities to production managers and engineers.
SAP enterprise resource planning software has seen wide adoption not only in manufacturing but also government, finance, and health sciences. Effective planning tools provide a number of key benefits to organizations, including:
While these benefits are significant, the impacts can be limited by an organization’s ability to integrate their other tracking, validation, and documentation systems with the SAP ERP implementation.
